Center Partners provide sustaining support as well as critical business and government interactions.
Interested in becoming a CEE Partner? Here is how corporate funds are leveraged for research:
Corporate Sponsor funds are used to support faculty and student research
leading to solid proposals that can compete for major grants or gifts. In this
way, corporate funds are leveraged to build a larger program of research
on the U.S. and global energy businesses and policy issues. The criteria for
seed funds from the CEE for research proposal development follow.
- Projects should be interdisciplinary;
- They must fall within the mission and scope of the CEE (to prepare current and future energy managers and policy makers for competitive energy markets);
- They must emphasize policies for successful commercial energy development; and
- They must focus on the role of government, the business/governmentinterface, or corporate strategies and management responses.
The Center pursues many broad topic areas that are critical to worldwide
energy development as well as specialized studies and research initiatives.
Our overall objective is to ensure that the University of Texas at Austin and
our partners (businesses, policy organizations and collaborating research
institutions) are in the top tier of worldwide energy research. The Center’s
research, training and outreach portfolio is on this web site.
